week 484 ~ our words emerge and quickly disappear

with one comment

our words emerge and quickly disappear
into the realm of things forgotten now
like love or a shared history while here
we continue to try not knowing how
this will end reaching for what we can’t see
communication some impossible
intersection of our lives now as we
navigate the impossible maze full
of memories long extinguished how far
can we proceed until there is nowhere
left to go ‘til the journey’s too bizarre
to contemplate because there’s no there there
as you slip away as your wandering mind
unties the stretched-thin cords that used to bind

week 471 ~ more behind than ahead

with one comment

more behind than ahead
drifting past midpoint
sunset bleeds river red
more behind than ahead
no option here instead
music in counterpoint
more behind than ahead
drifting past midpoint
